When I was a child our neighbour used to spy through our windows at night while dressed as a woman. Does that count?

He left town when people figured out that he was the cross-dressing Peeping Tom and started calling the cops on him.

He tried to make my younger brother call him “Uncle” on several occasions too. He also used to pay my brother to mow his lawn, this was all fine until one day when he requested my brother only ever wear shorts to mow the lawn.

He asked my Dad one time for help with something inside of his house (this was before we knew he was the Peeping Tom), and Dad went to help him. His living room was lined with walls of surveillance TVs (no clue what he was using that for).

He tried to proposition my Mum on several occasions, and they were weird, insulting propositions too (i.e. “I’ll give you a dozen eggs each week from my chickens if you give me a little something in return each week”).

Darling Husband got a call from the main office of our apartment complex, apparently someone made a noise complaint about us the previous night.  He responded by pointing out that he was currently in the parking lot, having just come home from his trip SEVERAL STATES AWAY.  So how all that noise came from OUR apartment is beyond me.

@VeggieBee: Yes! He was old and frail like Old Man Herbert too! Unlike OMH he was never funny…..it’s strange how something on TV can be so funny, but in real life so creepy.

By The Way – I’ve now got the Old Man Herbert quote “I’ve gotta lollipop strapped to the inside of my thigh” quote stuck in my head lol.

… I still have my christmas tree up.

Not really out of choice. My husband just came back from deployments and I can’t take the tree down by myself.

our tree is still up. i have to buy a tree bag for it, it won’t fit back in the box :/

i live in student housing, and have for the past 3 years. thankfully, we don’t have direct neighbors in this building. but in my last apartment, the people directly above me were always rearranging furniture or hammering at all hours of the night… it was weird. and the people across the hall set off fire alarms every night when they cooked dinner. and if one apartment’s alarms went off, the entire building’s alarms go off.

Our old downstairs neighbors called the leasing office immediately after they opened one morning to report that our big black dog was on our deck, peeing on their stuff.

a) This was in the middle of a blizzard.

b) We were still asleep.

c) We don’t have a dog at all, since we aren’t allowed to have them.

d) While we do have a 15lb black cat, he’s hardly mistaken for a “big black dog,” not to mention the fact that he’s only ever peed in the litter box.

They also slapped the shit out of their toddler one day–so hard we heard it in our apartment. Eesh.

Our neighbors don’t cut their grass, and I’m not just saying that to be anal, they NEVER cut it, maybe once/month! By the time they decide to cut it it takes them 2-3 days because at this point it’s a hay field. It annoys us but we’ve never filed a complaint, however we know of 2 other neighbors that have many times and if they don’t cut it this year the town will then send them the bill!
